Hey Norman Clegg
Wow, you're a true expert. I suppose Bob Dylan, Branford Marsalis, Ornette Coleman, Bruce Hornsby, Carlos Santana, John Cippolina, Clarence Clemons, Etta James, Art & Charles Neville, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Winwood, et al, also agree with you about how bad the Dead were after 1980.
And your logic is so sharp I'm really impressed with your wit. Not. You rated this show 4 stars but you invalidated any of the Dead's music after 1980. A bit confused, are we?
Why do you feel compelled to be so derogatory?
Ohhh, I get it. You're one of those types that make themselves feel good by putting other people down.
I have soundboard from November 1895 that has better sounding Phil, more lush sonic textures, more tonal variety than any soundboard from 1977. By that time their sound was stale and the band was so nonviable they were on the verge of bankruptcy.
Ain't No Time To Hate, dude.

On December 16, 1992 the boys were "ON". Every song is played to perfection. Jerry's voice also sounds really good.
Personally I love every single song in this show but the last 3 songs of the first set (Stuck Inside of Mobile, Row Jimmy, Let It Grow) are incredible and worth mentioning. Listen to Jerry's solos in Row Jimmy. The Shakedown is one for the ages. In my opinion its one of the best/hottest version they ever played. The whole band is just feeding off each other, trading licks and riffs everywhere, especially towards the end Bobby breaks out some pretty badass riffs. Out of all the versions of Shakedown Ive heard from 78-91 this is my favorite version and to me is the most creative of them all. (11/24/78 is my second favorite version & 10/25/79 my third favorite) Playing in the Band has some excellent jamming and Stella Blue is beautiful.
I believe this is the 2nd to last time Casey Jones is played. This is just one of those shows you can listen to over and over. The whole show just has a good energy about it. Go buy Dicks Picks 27.
Heres complete video of the first set:
The next night (12/17) is a pretty good show too.
This is probably the best Audience version of this show. Also.....who cares about Bobby goin into Good Lovin' like 5 seconds to early. If you think the band isn't "listening to each other" at this show your crazy. Every song is played almost perfect and more than makes up for any small mistakes there are. As for them not listening to each other at other shows throughout the 80s and 90s I can't argue. There are some clunkers here and there. But there are some real gems too, and this is one of them.

Very nice 2nd set
.....gotta agree with emwise here: Weir's trampling of Garcia's lovely Stella Blue jam exemplifies why this more-than-30-year-DeadHead doesn't listen to much after 1980; the band simply was not LISTENING to each other & giving the music what it NEEDED in the 2nd half of their career, as they did in the 1st half. With this example, you can plainly hear Garcia NOT wanting to "give over" to Bobby's call and I don't blame him......
Having said that, overall this is a very, very good set, something from the Late Period that I occasionally return to when I'm in the (rare) mood. This excellent AUD recording is the way to go, as ALL ALL ALL 80s & 90s SDBDs are as dry as popcorn farts.....

Jerry's running out the end of a lovely Stella Blue and Bob steps all over it with his premtaure begining to Good Lovin'. Real nice, Weir.
